Got a small farm or homestead? This is the second Pinterest board which I’ve established to provide practical info. Topic of this board is “mixed shops”—shop concepts, designs, and layouts that might be helpful if you're just setting things up, or improving your shop. A shop, or "tool shed" or plain “shed” (Aussie term) is an indispensable work space on every homestead or farm. The majority of "pins" are linked to videos or web pages where things are explained, further illustrated, and/or discussed. Visual information, text, or voice-over info about real shops, not idealized layouts.
Rural lifestyles require you to build, repair, augment, or upgrade things. It never ends. Chainsaws, mowers, pumps, possibly vehicles, etc all require attention. Tasks can range from repairs, maintenance, or modifications on devices, machines, and equipment all the way to making things from scratch from various materials. Materials can range from wood, to steel or aluminum, to plastics or leather, and more.
Arranging space and managing storage for tools & equipment are among the basic shed challenges. I’ve put about 130 entries on the site now, and I’ll keep adding to the image/website entries as time goes on. If you click on the URL above, you’ll probably see a limited view of the page; you need a free Pinterest membership to see everything. The system is simple to use and can be a path all sorts of useful information and understanding.
